Also, a girl and her Tethered Spinal Cord Syndrome, Neuro Endocrine Cell Hypoplasia, Lumbar Hemangioma, asymmetrical gluteal cleft, Pectus Carinatum who loves littlest pet shops, American girl dolls, playdates. And one yummy baby brother who has a coarctation and bicuspid valve and thinks super heroes are the best.

Remember when I told you......

I thought I was in the clear, I thought since everything else was kind of "not right" I wouldn't have anything else to worry about. I failed my Glucose test horribly. Your normal sugar levels are supposed to be 120. Mine were 169... You should never ever be over 120 if everything is working correctly. I was bugged. I begged my sweet friend, Jen, to watch Ry for the dreaded 4; that turned into 5 1/2 hour, in-office test. After sitting there so long and getting poked 4-ish times (two times my veins rolled) I was done. I haven't got the results back yet... But it sure would explain why I feel like garbage. If I don't have gestational diabetes then I am a lot more tired and uncomfortable than I remember with Ry. I'll have to let you know what the results are.

I have a 2 month old baby boy with a variation of HLHS. If you need anyone to talk to, please feel free to contact me. You can see pictures and a description of our experience of the Norwood on our blog. I had a really neat experience in the temple prior to his birth. I know that this is part of our sons mission and know that he was aware of this condition prior to coming to us. I can't tell you how many peoples lives he has touched to help remind them of the importance of eternal families, faith and hope. You will be sustained through your journey ahead. You must be pretty special parents to be blessed with such a special little guy coming into your family! All our love and prayers.
